‘Scandal’: Popular Blogger Exposed As An ABC Employee

Network Vows To Investigate

Someone could use help from Olivia Pope!

One of the most popular and influential bloggers covering ABC’s red-hot political drama SCANDAL has been exposed as an employee of the network.

“I am 100 percent sure that Scandal411 is [director of special sales] Courtney Pajor,” a source tells TheWrap’s Jethro Nededog.

Tweeting as @Scandal411, Pajor racked up more than 26,500 followers, the site reports.  The handle has since been changed to @GrantForPrez and the associated website www.Scandal411.com has been made private and requires a login password.

Needless to say, this is quite a black eye for ABC’s social media department.

A network rep told TheWrap:  “We take these allegations very seriously. We are investigating the situation and will handle accordingly.”

Jethro’s story also maintains that Pajor (or whoever else is behind the operation) has frequently engaged in nasty and profane exchanges with fans and journalists who cover the show.

When Kerry Washington didn’t win the Best Actress Emmy last month, she tweeted “F-CK YOU ATAS.”
